Additional details

Remember, after the loss or theft, the passport is invalidated and can no longer be used for travel, even if it’s found again. It’s important to report the loss immediately to prevent identity theft or other forms of misusage. To reenter your home country, you’ll likely need an emergency travel document issued by your embassy or consulate. Always keep additional identification documents and photocopies of your passport separately. It can facilitate the process of obtaining a new passport or an emergency travel document. If you’re travelling, make sure you have travel insurance covering such emergencies.
